Project and Slow Cooker

As I believe I mentioned before, my husband and I have been working on our "home project" that we were to complete this year as part of my 25 by 25 list. Well, the project is finished and so is another item on my 25 by 25 list!

My husband and I have been sleeping on our mattress and box spring on the floor for longer than I would like to admit. We have been in desperate need for a bed frame but, after just buying a house, I couldn't justify spending $1,000 on the kind of bed frames that I liked. I really wanted a head board and toe board, too. So, I waited... for three years a long time. It was worth the wait because my husband and I finally had the time to make our own!

We used old barn wood and the total cost was about $60. We saved a load of money, so what did we decide to do? Spend it somewhere else.

Our "old" TV


We upgraded our TV and took the other flat screen up to our room! We plan to hang it on the wall in our bedroom, soon.

Last night was date night (date #9 of 12) with my sweet husband. Since we went out for dinner last night, going overboard with eating is not an option tonight. I worked really hard this week at the gym, so I am going to practice my self control tonight! Tonight, we are going to a Cystic Fibrosis benefit where there will be a lot of free drinks and good food.
Speaking of good food, I recently realized that I have not used my slow cooker in at least 6 months. I can't believe it! I LOVE crock pot meals for many reasons; the number one reason being that dinner is ready as soon as I walk in the door from work! I decided to start searching the web for some good slow cooker meal ideas. I came across a couple that I can't wait to try next week!

Do you use a slow cooker for meals? Do you call it a crock pot or a slow cooker? What do you usually make with it?

  1. I can't wait to see your success with the slow cooker. I never seem to make anything good with ours though I love having it for the fall. Share when you get some good ones!
